About me

I'm a senior copywriter, editor, content manager and tone of voice consultant. I have more than 20 years’ experience across online, print and social communications for both B2C and B2B audiences, mainly in the technology, telecoms and financial services sectors. Copywriting – I’ve written websites, blog posts, customer and internal comms, direct mail, video scripts and social content. As a journalist, my work has featured in Wired, Stuff, The Guardian and The Independent. Tone of voice development – I’ve helped organisations to develop their tone of voice both for individual projects and for overall brand development. Content management – I’ve edited magazines, content-driven websites and blogs. I’m accustomed to working with marketing departments, agencies and other stakeholders to establish the best type of content to achieve set goals, and worked with teams to organise the delivery of that content. User experience – I’ve worked with UX and development teams to craft copy for complex ecommerce and informational websites. Creative agencies – I’ve worked with agencies on projects for their clients as well as managing relationships with agencies for enterprise clients.
